The Smart Shield® Applicator is specially designed to make applying flea and tick control easier, more precise - and neater - than ever before. You simply insert the appropriate tube for your cat/kitten into the applicator, close it and squeeze to apply. The applicator’s ergonomic, contoured shape makes it easy to grip and a built-in tip helps to spread the cat’s/kitten’s hair to allow the liquid to more readily reach your cat’s/kitten’s skin. The tube is sealed inside, so you can be confident that the liquid goes onto your cat/kitten - and not your hand.

Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats is a long-lasting flea and tick treatment specifically formulated for cats and kittens with an insect growth regulator (IGR) to prevent and control flea infestations. It also contains the highly effective flea, deer tick, and mosquito killing agent, Etofenprox, which kills biting adult fleas, deer ticks, and mosquitoes your cat/kitten may acquire from its surroundings. A single application will provide flea egg hatch inhibition for up to 30 days. Adult fleas can live on your cat while producing vast numbers of eggs, which drop off your cat and develop in the surrounding environment. Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats kills adult fleas and flea eggs, breaking the flea life cycle and providing your cat/kitten relief from flea bites at the same time.

After application, your cat’s/kitten’s ordinary skin oils disperse Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats over your cat’s/kitten’s body for protection against biting adult fleas and the development of flea eggs. Once adult fleas are evident on your cat/kitten, there is likely an infestation of flea eggs and flea larvae in your home. To completely kill the existing flea population, you may need to treat your home and your cat’s bedding (home sprays, foggers), as well as your yard (yard spray) with traditional flea products approved for use on pets, around the home, or in your yard. Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats can be used in conjunction with other Bio Spot Active Care™ premise products. As with all flea products, they are most effective when used as part of a total program aimed at reducing all stages of fleas in the cat’s/kitten’s environment.

Directions For Use

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Read and follow all directions and precautions on the product label.

USE RESTRICTIONS: This product contains 1, 3 or 6 monthly doses, each 0.061 fl oz. Do not apply more than once every month. Do not use more than one tube per cat. Do not use on kittens less than 12 weeks old. Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes or mouth. Do not allow your cat to ingest this product.

Note: Application assumes one tube per cat per application.

For Cats & Kittens (5 Lbs And Over Only)

To apply the Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats treatment, use one disposable liquid tube for each application with the applicator device. Do not use more than one tube per cat.

1. OPEN Use finger scoop to lift open pink door.

2. LOAD To Load, place tube WHITE SIDE UP under the pink tabs.

3. CLOSE Close the pink door and the tube will snap open.

4. APPLY The cat/kitten should be standing for easy application. To apply, use tip to part hair and get next to cat’s/kitten’s skin at the base of the skull. Press square on pink door and squeeze out the entire contents of the tube onto the cat’s/kitten’s skin.

Do not spread Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats by hand over the cat/kitten. Do not bathe the cat/kitten within the first 24 hours after Spot On® has been applied. Households with more than one cat/kitten should prevent cats/kittens from grooming each other until solution has dried. Although the cat’s/kitten’s skin and hair oils will over time distribute the application over the entire cat/kitten, brushing the cat/kitten 12-24 hours after treatment will help to distribute the material over the skin.

5. DISPOSE To dispose of empty tube, open pink door and drop empty tube into trash or offer for recycling if available. Close applicator device door and store in original package.

6. RETREAT AFTER 30 DAYS Do not reapply product for 30 days. Do not treat more than once per month.

Note: Each package contains sufficient tubes for 1, 3 or 6 applications.

This product is most effective when used as part of a total flea and tick management program. Use other Bio Spot Active Care™ products registered for residential area control of these pests in conjunction with this treatment. Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

The successive feeding activity of fleas on cats may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of cats with Bio Spot Active Care™ Flea & Tick Spot On® for Cats rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.

STORAGE and DISPOSAL: Storage: Store in a cool, dry (preferably locked) area away from children and animals. Do not store unused tubes separately from their packaging. Liquid Tube Disposal: If empty: Do not reuse empty tube. Place in trash or offer for recycling if available.

If partly filled: Call your local solid waste agency for disposal instructions. Never place unused product down any indoor or outdoor drain.
